50 Gallon Journal (Pic Heavy)
This is going to be my first journal. I am relatively new to fish tanks, when I was younger my dad and I had a turtle tank but I never really took care of it. I started with a Betta and moved onto a 20gal planted community as well as a 10 gal half moon. Both low tech with just some basic fish in them, livebearers, tetras etc. I'd been hoping to get more into the aquarium world and make a larger planted community tank maybe with some dwarf cichlids or something.
Well that aside, I got a free 50 gallon from some friends of friends. Went and picked it up the other day, not exactly what I had been expecting (especially since they told me it was a 75). But it looks like I have my work cut out for me so this may be a very slow journal.
Picked up the tank and it was very very very veerrrry dirty. Iron stand was included but also quite dirty and rusting in some places. Came with two filters, heater, and the typical box of stuff.
Here are some pics of it in my garage:
As you can see....very dirty
